Makeup for The Face

A concealer can come in liquid form, as a cream or as a powder and is a good tool for making the the appearance of the skin look uniform in color.

Blusher is a good product to use so that you can highlight your cheekbones. You can decide to use a subtle colour so that it looks natural or you can use a bright colour for a striking effect.


Makeup for The Eyes

The basic makeup products that you should have for the eyes include your eyeshadow, an eyeliner, eyebrow pencil and mascara.

Eyeshadow is used to enhance the look of the eye sockets and bring great attention to the area. Subtle and mute tones are suitable for everyday wear but evening makeup can be a little daring and more dramatic.

Eyeliner and an eyebrow pencil helps to bring further definition to the eye area. If you have small eyes, adding a dark shade can help them to stand out more.

Mascara is a great tool for opening up the eyes. Adding a shade to your eyelashes helps them to look thicker too.


Makeup for The Lips

A smear of lipstick on your lips can completely change the way that you look. This is all down to the shade that you use. A light colour lipstick is great for day wear but if you choose a bold bright colour like red, then people are going to notice.

Although many women use a lipstick on its own, finding a matching lip liner product can help to extend the life of your lipstick so that you do not have to re-apply it as often.

A lip liner defines the contour of your lips and helps to ensure that your lipstick doesn’t stray outside the line.
